Spirit Awards: Molly Shannon Wins Best Supporting Actress

The 'SNL' alum even did her trademark "Superstar" pose onstage.

Molly Shannon was named best supporting actress for her role in Other People at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday. 

Shannon was nominated alongside Edwina Findley (Free in Deed), Paulina Garcia (Little Men), Lily Gladstone (Certain Women) and Riley Keough (American Honey). 

Accepting the award, Shannon thanked a long list of colleagues and dedicated her award "to all the moms who would go to the end of the earth for their kids and their families." 

The actress, who plays a mother stricken with cancer in the film, also included a somber note, encouraging people to tell the stories of cancer survivors. "Keep telling these kinds of stories!"

The award was presented by Captain Fantastic's Viggo Mortensen. 

The 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards were hosted by John Mulaney and Nick Kroll, airing live on IFC from the Santa Monica Pier.
